The One with October’s Instagram Challenges {Week Two}

Hello again!

I was a little absent from the blog this week. Since heading back to work, I’m back to not having as much spare time to work on it. I have so many posts planned but no time to take the photos in daylight! I hope I am able to do some bulk photo taking on Tuesday but not only do I have my ultrasound appointment but I have to try to get my car in to get the battery looked at so that takes a good chunk of my day away.

On the 23rd is my nephew’s 2nd birthday so I’ll be taking a trip to my sister’s house for the weekend, along with my son and a few other family members! Every year, his birthdays are a little extra special because he has SMA. His little sister had SMA and unfortunately passed away shortly after turning 1. It’s a terrible disease that takes children way too soon but luckily, my nephew is in a new program that has helped him tremendously!

On Friday, my boyfriend got hit by a car on his bike! Luckily, he is okay minus a few scrapes and bruises. I just wish it knocked enough sense into him to start wearing a helmet. -_- This city has a bad rep for hitting cyclists and it’s exactly why I refuse to ride a bike on the roads here, even though I love to ride bikes.

I have had a hard time keeping up with my challenges this week due to work and other things but here is what I managed to complete!

Day 8 of the #hpskincarechallenge is "after too much Butter Beer." I don't drink very often these days but the feeling of a hangover is hard to forget! After a night of drinking, the key is hydration! Lots of water and don't forget to hydrate the skin as well! ・・・ The best way to hydrate my skin is using the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask! 💦 @laneigeca ・・・ Day 8 of the #octoberbeautychallenge2017 is "favourite high end product." This Water Sleeping Mask is definitely one of my favourite high end products! The best part? How affordable it is! Although did anyone notice the price went up in the Canadian store? It was $30 when I bought a full size recently and now it's $32.50! 🤔 ・・・ Day 8 of the #octobermaskchallenge is "H2O." This Water Sleeping Mask perfectly ties into this challenge because it is made with mineral water! ・・・ And while I'm multitasking, I thought I would show off the set that I purchased recently from Sephora! It contains the full size of the Water Sleeping Mask plus minis of the Water Bank Essence and the Water Bank Moisture Cream, all for $36 CAD! The value is $50. . . . . . #laneigewatersleepingmask #laneige #watersleepingmask #hydration #h2o #hydratingskincare #skincare #skincareroutine #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder500 #discoverunder1k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay

Day 9 of the #hpskincarechallenge is "Mischief Managed." How do I keep those pesky spots under control? Well, I don't really. 😅 But I try. This is the best system that has been working for me lately. Details below! ⬇️ ・・・ 1️⃣ GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment ⚡️After washing my face, I use this as a spot treatment. I leave it on for 10 minutes or so. I've had amazing results since using this! @glamglowcanada 2️⃣ NeoStrata AcneClear Clarifying Solution 2% Salicylic Acid ⚡️After my final skincare step, I take a q-tip and apply this solution to my pimples. @neostratacanada 3️⃣ MaskerAide Spotted! Anti-Blemish Clear Spot Patches ⚡️I wait for my previous step to dry and then apply these clear patches on the more angry spots. These heal my acne a lot quicker plus keeps it protected. @maskeraidebeauty ・・・ Day 9 of the #octobermaskchallenge is "berry." I chose the Blueberry mask from The Face Shop. Their masks are so affordable and effective for a shot of hydration and radiance. @thefaceshopcanada ・・・ This also ties in with my spot managing routine. Acne fighting products can really dry out the skin. I like to use hydrating masks to combat the dryness! ・・・ Share with me your acne fighting secrets! . . . . . #skincare #skincareobsessed #skincareroutine #skincareaddict #neostrata #glamglow #maskeraide #thefaceshop #harrypotternerd #potterhead #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder500 #discoverunder1k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay

Day 10 of the #hpskincarechallenge is "Golden Snitch." I don't have many gold products in my collection but I do have these Passport to Beauty Gold Radiance Luxury Facial Masks! They definitely feel luxurious on the skin! ・・・ Day 10 of the #octoberbeautychallenge2017 is "hair mask." These Hask deep conditioning treatments are unbelievable! My hair feels so soft and silky after using these. They really nourish from root to tip. My favourite is the coconut but all the ones I've tried are amazing! ・・・ Do you have a favourite "gold" product? Which hair masks do you recommend? . . . . . #goldskincare #gold #hairmask #deepconditioner #hask #passporttobeauty #skincare #facialmasks #makeup #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder500 #discoverunder1k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay

Day 11 of the #hpskincarechallenge is "Alohomora." What products do I use to unlock the key to my youth? Details below! ⬇️ ・・・ 1️⃣ Pur~lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum 💎 This eye serum has helped soften my fine lines significantly. I've been using it for over a year now! @purlisse 2️⃣ GlamGlow YouthMud Tinglexfoliate Treatment 💎 This mask provides a quick fix to youthful looking skin. Lines appear smoother after using this! @glamglowcanada 3️⃣ Roger & Gallet Aura Mirabilis Double Extract 💎 An anti aging serum to help prevent lines and wrinkles is essential to my routine! @rogergalletcan ・・・ Day 11 of the #octoberbeautychallenge2017 is "go to foundation." I am still searching for my HG foundation but below are a few that I really enjoy. ・・・ 1️⃣ Pur~lisse BB Tinted Moist Cream SPF 30 💎 This has been my go-to for the summer but I just can't stop using it. I love how much coverage it has for a BB cream! 2️⃣ Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer 💎 I haven't used this for a few months. It has great coverage but I prefer something lighter in summer. I will start using this again in the winter! @cliniquecanada 3️⃣ Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation 💎 This is my favourite year round foundation because it's light on the skin and buildable! @makeupforeverca ・・・ Let me know your favourite anti aging products and foundations! . . . . . #foundationfaves #antiagingskincare #skincare #makeup #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder500 #discoverunder1k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay #purlisse #glamglow #rogerandgallet #clinique #makeupforever

Day 12 of the #hpskincarechallenge is "feel like a Veela." When I think of a Veela, I think of something ethereal and radiant. Here are the products I would use to capture the glow of a Veela! Deets below! ⬇️ ・・・ 1️⃣ Pixi + Aspyn Ovard Glow-y Powder in Santorini Sunset 💎 Highlighter is essential to capture that glow! @pixibeauty 2️⃣ Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips in Warm Nude 💎 More highlighter options as well as glow-y bronzer and shadows! @physiciansformula 3️⃣ Nuxe Nuxellence Éclat Youth and Radiance Revealing Anti Aging Care 💎 For an instant radiant complexion, this Nuxe product is a must! @nuxeca 4️⃣ Pixi Skin Treats Glow Mist 💎 For a quick shot of glowyness, mist this on your face! ・・・ Day 12 of the #octoberbeautychallenge2017 is "blush." I did a blush collection photo recently but that was before I got this Pacifica Coconut Blush Duo! @pacificabeauty ・・・ What are your favourite highlighters and blushes? . . . . . #blush #highlighter #glowymakeup #harrypotterlove #skincare #makeup #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder500 #discoverunder1k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay #pixibeauty #pacifica #physiciansformula

Day 14 of the #octobermaskchallenge is "honey." 🍯 I have two masks here. One is the Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask and the other is a Secret Key Nature Recipe Honey sheet mask! @farmacybeauty @secretkey_official ・・・ I haven't tried either of these masks yet so I suppose I should get on that. I've tried the tea tree version of the sheet mask and despite the weird fit, I did enjoy it. Have you tried either of these?! ・・・ I don't know about you but honey always makes me think of Winnie the Pooh!

La-Roche Posay Haul:

Last week, I did a La-Roche Posay haul! I have only ever tried a sunscreen fluid sample from them before so I was going in blind, which I don't normally do. ・・・ I got an email about this product called Serozinc. The email toted it as oil blotting paper in a can and described it as an anti-shine, purifying and mattifying mist! I absolutely had to try it! ・・・ They also had a deal on that was if you spend $50, you get 10% off and 5 deluxe samples. I added the Effaclar Serum to my cart since it's anti-aging, pore refining and has Glycolic Acid. ・・・ On top of the 5 free samples, they also let you choose 3 samples for your order anyway. So in total I got 9 free samples and look at the size of some of them! I was impressed! I'm just not sure why I got 9 instead of 8 lol. ・・・ They don't have the same deal on anymore but they have a 15% off $65 plus free shipping plus a 6-piece gift on an $80 order. The code is THANKSGIVING. @larocheposayca ・・・ Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians! 🇨🇦🦃 Back to work tonight for me and now I'm getting a cold lol. Great! . . . . . #larocheposay #serozinc #effaclar #skincare #skincarehaul #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #skincareobsessed #makeup #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder500 #discoverunder1k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay

  1. Sorry to hear about your boyfriend getting hit!! My husband actually got hit by a car while walking in May of 16′ he suffered lumbar injuries and still has a lot of back pain and issues from that accident. It’s actually been a nightmare with his pain and injuries. I hope your boyfriend is doing alright and does decide to wear his helmet!! It could have been a lot worse!!! It’s so scary!


    1. Wow! That is crazy what happened to your boyfriend. I can only imagine all the pain he is going through still. My dad got hit by a car a few years back as well and broke his foot but it really screwed up his life for a long time. Drivers really need to start paying more attention and stop being in such a hurry. Too many careless ones these days.

      1. I totally agree with you! I think the guy who hit my husband was texting! He tried saying he didn’t hit him at all, as my husband was thrown to the ground, the impact took off the guys side mirror and cracked his window… plus my nephew was with him (didn’t get hit) and a few others saw what happened as well. It’s unbelievable. That’s awful about your dad! Way too many careless drivers. It’s terrible!


      2. I can’t believe he would try to say that he didn’t even hit him! Wow, the nerve of some people. I won’t text and drive at all. I see a lot of drivers on their phones unfortunately.


    1. SMA aka Spinal Muscular Atrophy is a genetic disease that affects the motor nerve cells in the spinal cord, taking away the ability to walk, eat or breathe. Most SMA kids don’t make it past 2. 😦 My nephew is in a new trial that gives him injections and he is able to move, sit, etc. which he never would have been able to do if not for the program. It unfortunately was just in the beginning stages when my niece was diagnosed and she wasn’t able to take advantage of it.


  2. Hi lovely, wow what a crazy week! Luckily your boyfriend’s fine! Ugh men can be so stubborn at times… So sad to hear about your niece that she died so soon. It’s terrible for parents to see both of their children have the disease. Hopefully, the new treatment will help him on the long run also. Yes, I also like to take pics with good lighting! I usually do that on sundays… Lovely pics! xoxo Sarah


  3. Sometimes life just gets in the way of the blog, it’s no big deal though! I really enjoy your instagram challenge posts, especially the Harry potter themes.
    That’s terrible about your boyfriend getting hit by a car!! =O I’m glad he’s okay, that’s scary! Stupid drivers need to watch where they’re going…
    Enjoy your weekend with family!
